From the Publisher :

"Gordon Parks is remarkable: a Renaissance man who has mastered photography, filmmaking, and writing. The story of his life is certainly an incredible one. Transcending voyeurism, Parks’ photographs reveal vulnerabilities of the human experience with grace and compassion. In his 90s and still driven to experience what the world has to offer, and to express his response to it, Gordon Parks is an inspiration to us all." --Janet St. John, Booklist

From the Inside Flap :

2007 Carter G. Woodson Honor Book

A Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People 2007

Recipient of the 2007 Storytelling World Award Honor Title

Gordon Parks' mother told him, "What a white boy can do, you can too--and no excuses." At age sixteen, while working as a steward on the Northern Pacific Railroad, he discovered he wanted to be a photographer when he borrowed someone's Life magazine. The photographs of poor families were very disheartening to him; however, the photographs of Parisian fashions sparked his curiosity. Later, when he noticed a Life camera bag belonging to a train passenger, he got the courage to ask the photographer, Mr. Capa, about his job.

Although he grew up in poverty and faced many obstacles while pursuing his dreams, Parks' talent and perseverance always prevailed. He studied photographs, visited art museums, and read books about photography for years until finally he bought a camera and started taking pictures. His career officially started when a clerk in a camera shop saw his work and was so impressed that he gave him his own exhibit. Twelve years later, he became the first black photographer for Life magazine. Later he became a successful novelist, director, producer, screenwriter, and music composer. Parks is best known for his photographs of African Americans, and this book highlights those images that made him famous.

From growing up in poverty in Fort Scott, Kansas, to flourishing as an artist in New York City, Parks never forgot what his mother had told him. Parks' life story is sure to inspire children to use "no excuses" when pursuing their dreams.

"The sincerity within the photos of this. . . deceased artist and the simple text tell a story of belief in oneself and strength to prevail over adversity."
--School Library Journal

Ann Parr was born and raised in north-central Kansas. At age fifty-eight, she decided to return to school and earned her MFA in writing for children from Vermont College in 2004. After she read an article in her local newspaper about fellow native Kansan Gordon Parks, she was inspired to use his story for her first book.
